It's interesting to re-read the Kennedy Center's October 2004 press release announcing the Kirov's "Corsaire" engagement, coming up next week.
[i]ENGAGEMENT REPLACES DANCE THEATRE OF HARLEM IN THE 2004-2005 BALLET SERIES
I just read this in a posting having to do with Kirov/Corsaire. I know a bit about recent DTH problems, but had the impression that things were getting better. Anyone know the story behind (and timeframe) behind this cancellation? Or prospects for a return next year?
DTH was one of my favorite companies when residing in NYC -- and Arthur Mitchell (whom I watched long ago with NYCB at City Center) is, in my book, one of the finest dancers, ambassadors, company leaders, and gentlemen in American ballet.
